This page is a public wiki hosted by Treasury Board of Canada’s (TBS) Black Employees Network (B.E.N.) to facilitate collaboration and knowledge sharing.
The TBS Black Employees Network Group on GCconnex, provides a safe space to discuss barriers faced by Black employees and to have real conversations about inclusion, anti‑Black racism and discrimination.
B.E.N. provides a unique opportunity to be part of a forum to reflect upon the reality of racism and discrimination in the workplace. We all have a role to play in dismantling anti-Black racism in the GC and in Canada.
To all public servants: we encourage you to join us in taking a stand. Join the Black Employees Network Group on GCconnex, and explore the resources, events and announcements posted on this page.

The Federal Black Employee Caucus (FBEC) supports efforts at the national, regional, and local levels to address issues faced by Black federal public servants.
FBEC’s two objectives are to:

- Support the mental health of Black employees by working together to reduce harassment and discrimination in the workplace.
